Be prepared for the ocean. Dramamine night before, patches, whatever you need to help you not get sick. the ocean in Aruba can get pretty choppy. Just be prepared and expect it. The fish are there as I’ve always caught fish while fishing in Aruba.

Other times of the year you can go to the other side of the island and catch sailfish. Would prefer to do that

Bring your own refreshments, don't count on what they provide. Also, waters can be rough so be prepared for that. Was no issue for me, but my guest were a bit nervous.

Drink a few beers first thing in the morning. Seas are rough for the average, non sea-going folks, like ourselves.

We really liked the sunset tour. Wasn't too hot, but prepare for it to be windy. Because it was and always is windy on the water according to our guides.

It's a boat. Aruba has high winds so the water can be rocky. If you're unsure of getting sick I'd suggest taking seasick medicine ahead of time.

Captain said bottom fishing was a little more dependable the week we were there. Caught 10-12 fish in less than 2 hours before I had to cut it short for the kids. When we docked I saw another crew that went deep sea fishing with about 8 fish laid out with a nice sized bonito and mahi so seems like both are productive

Be prepared for choppy waters. This is real deep sea fishing, with 15-20 foot swells on normal weather days.

Trolling and teaser fishing can be hit or miss. Never a guarantee. If it’s important to make sure everyone catches fish or kids are onboard, then try a bottom fishing trip. The weather and sea are beautiful. Can be very windy at times.

I would recommend lifting weights for a few months before your trip so you can catch more fish.

The North side of the island has large swells, so if you get motion sickness, you will definitely want patches or medication. We did see land the entire time during our trip, so that did help keep your eye on the horizon.

Maybe not all species are hitting but a lot are. One boat landed a handful of wahoo and tamed a sailfish which are typically scarce this time of year.
